The dedicated motorcyclist navigation is now available in Africa.

Last year, Google Maps introduced its Motorcycle Mode in Southeast Asia, which selects routes tailored for the needs of riders.

Earlier this month, the tech giant began to roll out the app update in Africa, starting with Egypt, where over four million people use motorcycles as their primary mode of transportation.

Until now, Google Maps has only offered efficient navigation for pedestrians, commuters, cyclists and drivers.

It is expected that Motorcycle Mode will continue to roll out worldwide in the coming years.

Rival navigation app Waze implemented its own motorcycle mode in 2017, which received a mixed response, so it may be for the best that Google is taking its time.
